Pours clear amber, small off white head. Aroma is oddly candy like, more sugar daddy than the usual malt flavors. Taste is sweet candy, brown sugar, not unpleasant. Vaguely like cream soda. Light to medium mouthfeel.

Gonna be honest: only reason I tried this thing was to knock out a "Low Alcohol" entry on the styles list, so it’s not like I was expecting anything more than what I got. But, really, O’Douls Amber isn’t the worst beer I’ve ever drank, better even than most the ABV macro-lagers that actually have alcohol. Nose is straight macro skunkiness, but the pour’s okay, and the taste has an unexpectedly estery apple vibe, even if it never really amounts to more than a brief flirtation with discernible flavor. Sparkly texture is bearable. Overall, we’re talking a beer that’s far, far, far from being good, but it could be worse. At least it’s not Bud Light Platinum, right?

Amber version is better than the regular but it is hard to find out in the world.

From bottle it’s mostly clear burnt gold with a short off-white head. Aroma impression is caramel syrup, dirt, leather, rotting apple, stale cigar. Light bodied with fluffy effervescence before a jarring sour turn mid-palate before finishing sweet and dirty.

Pours clear amber with a white head. Sweet malt and carmel aroma. Taste same as aroma but pretty watered down. Not enough flavour or body for me.

Fles van 300ml in restaurant bij Brice. Als glas een soort jam-potje. Bier smaakte goed als een echte amber.

Bottle to glass . Mild sweet malt and faint noble hop aroma. Light amber, small white head. Light malty flavor with slight toast, just perceptible hops. Decent carbonation, thin. OK for an NA, drinkable but not interesting.
